Classic Album Review: SHeDAISY | Knock on the Sky

The country-pop sister act deliver another batch of sure-fire chart-climbers.

355

This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


You’ll find their music filed under country, but in reality, typographically annoying sister act SHeDAISY are about as backwoods as a crantini.

That is not a knock on Knock on the Sky, Krisyn, Kelsi, and Kassidy Osborn’s official followup to 1999’s The Whole Shebang. In fact, there’s almost nothing you could knock about this well-written, immaculately constructed, inventively produced collection of contemporary roots-pop and girl-power twang. Shucks, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette or Amanda Marshall — hell, even Faith Hill — would be happy to have any of these 14 sure-fire chart-climbers in their arsenal. Though few of them would be adventurous enough to sprinkle teen-pop harmonies (I’m Lit) and hip-hop (the hidden title cut and the Alanis-style kissoff Get Over Yourself) in with the acoustic guitars and mandolins like the Osborns do here. Just file them under pop and be done with it.
